Eddie Murphy‘s first film in five years is set for release this year.
Its name? ‘Mr Church’, based on the real life and deeply moving friendship between a young woman, a dying mother and their cook.
Murphy plays Henry Joseph Church and joined his co-stars to tease its first look.
Check it out below…
Charlotte “Charlie” Brody is not pleased when Henry Joseph Church arrives at their modest home, at the request of Marie Brody’s deceased lover, to serve as their cook. Mr Church made a solemn promise to Marie’s former lover that he would take care of Marie for 6 months because Marie is dying of cancer. Young Charlotte has no idea that her mother is sick and refuses to warm up to the man who is suddenly an ever-present figure in her life. However, Mr Church’s presence becomes far more important than Charlotte could ever imagine. Marie’s mother lives another 6 years, and Mr Church stays on to nurse Marie through her illness. Mr Church becomes a loving role model and life long friend to Charlotte, and to Charlotte’s child, long after Marie dies.
A theatrical release date is yet to be set.
